Last week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius refused to testify before a planned hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. She claimed she has scheduling conflicts. She was just too darned busy. According to the WSJ, Henry Chao, the technology guru for the Affordable Health Care Act is also invisible, ditto other officials who might be asked to explain the insurance exchange foul up.
Along with IRS official Lois, I’ll take the Fifth, Lerner, they have all gone to the mattresses. In the event there is anyone in America who has not seen the Godfather movie – even less likely than that the Obama Care exchanges will actually function – the phrase means to hide out in preparation for all out war. It’s not clear whether Obama’s consigliore, aka Eric Holder, has approved. He has problems of his own.
On thing seems clear, Don Obama has the hiding out part down pat. Every time a serious problem arises the Don goes into hiding. Just try getting a straight answer from him on Benghazi, the IRS scandals, the government shut down (the Republicans did it) or the debt ceiling (absent).
If all else fails he can always throw one of the gang under the bus. Are those tire tracks we saw on Kathleen Sebelius’s back?
